Almond Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies… I can’t think of a phrase that makes me happier!

Maybe the word massage is a close second and nap is running for third, but cookie is definitely my favorite word and snack.

Cookies make everyone smile. Everyone.

Have you ever heard a person say, “I hate cookies!” It’s just not possible.

Cookies could be the world’s best common denominator. World peace through Cookie Ambassadorship!

Why not?

Making Almond Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies |

I like to take cookies to my friends and neighbors as a little memento that I’m thinking about them, and you know what? Cookies are little miracle workers. They mend relationships, form unbreakable bonds, and offer a symbol of hope to everyone who partakes.

Ok, maybe I’m getting a little carried away. Yet I’m not off by that much.

Today’s Almond Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies are a personal favorite.

I’ve been on an almond butter kick lately. When I need a little snack, I’ll grab a spoonful of rich creamy almond butter and slather it on top of half an apple.

As a hardcore peanut butter lover, I was a little skeptical of almond butter at first. I mean really, what could beat good ol’ American peanut butter? Yet at first taste, I fell head-over-heels in love with almond butter and haven’t looked back.

Easy Almond Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Here I’ve taken my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe and substituted almond butter. Nothing fancy, just almond butter and a little chocolate. I’ll admit, Almond Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies are not the most glamorous cookies I’ve ever made.

Yet sprinkle a little sea salt on top brings out the best in both the almond flavor and the chocolate. Almond Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies would be a fantastic addition to your holiday cookie exchange this year.
